In Kevin McMullin’s Low Tide, a group of high schoolers waste away their summers by breaking into vacation homes to steal valuables, aimlessly search for girls on the boardwalk, and picking petty fights with tourists at the local burger stand.It’s the ideal situation for anyone who has grown up in a beach town, except when the cops zero in on your daily activities.
Laden with a unique 80s vibe and a tone that scream Goonies and The Outsiders, Low Tide is a fresh, unique, and fun coming of age story that we thoroughly enjoyed when it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.Now, thanks to its first official trailer, others are getting in on the action.
Though the trailer itself is hardly addicting, it does give a solid overview of the story, its leading players, and the tense relationship between the boys who at times call themselves friends.Starring Brendan McHugh, Kevin Rowe, Richard Peele, Ryan Cahill, and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Low Tide is making its debut on DirectTV September 5 before hitting theaters October 4.
About Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
